I sometimes get toe cramps as well, not just in cycling. But not often enough for me to go looking for solutions.

One thing i have noticed is when i started riding with cleats, I "clenched"/made rigid my feet (toes included). This kind of coincided with my first series of toe cramp for a while. I do not know if I am meant to do this with my feet or not. When I notice I am doing it, I make a concise effort to relax my toes.

Cheers Andrew,
I'll limit riding in my high heels to special occasions :lol:
Seriously though, have done a few rides since the first post using clipless pedals and shoes which seems to have solved the problem.
Thanks for the replies.
